Romain Perrot (Vomir, Trou aux Rats) and Paul Hegarty (Safe, Power Acoustics) continue to push the barriers of feeble noise. Inspired by the total failure of the powerful concrete forts of the Maginot Line, they grumble, moan and mumble over field recordings, found tapes played too loud and bursts of simple noise. Taking the power out of harsh noise, this pathetic ensemble can only dream of opening new pork markets in Beijing.

Helen Papaioannou’s baritone saxophone & electronics meld through obstinate repetitions, drones and rickety patterns, at once both stark and playful. 

Michael Barthel, born in 1977, growing up in East-Berlin, is a Sound-Poet living in Leipzig. Since 1994 Barthel works as an autodidact in Noise / Tape Music. From 2009 his focus shifted to working with language in writing and sound. His „Sprechstücke“ combines sound poetry, the big mouth of Berlin dialect and lyric in the intention and loudness of Punk, ending up its poems topics of desire and despair in human relationships. Releases on Tochnit Aleph, Regional Bears and Ultraniche.
